Heppenheim Old Town

Heppenheim Old Town


Experience the Middle Ages in picturesque alleys

The hometown of Formula 1 racing driver Sebastian Vettel is picturesquely situated between the Odenwald and the Ried, framed by vineyards and fruit trees. On a tour of Heppenheim’s old town, you can feel the history of the wine and festival town around every corner: medieval half-timbered houses, romantic old town alleys and idyllic squares transport you back in time. High above the city towers majestically the Starkenburg Castle. A particularly good time for a trip to Heppenheim is autumn – the time of the grape harvest and wine festivals with onion tart and new wine, when the leaves in the vineyards glow yellow-red. The popular Heppenheim Lantern Trail, on the other hand, can be walked at any time of year.
